RFID Tags for Glass Surfaces

Customized RFID tags ideal for windshields and other glass surfaces

Our RFID tags for glass offer specialized inlays to be read through windshields and more, providing a read range of 18+ feet. We also offer a removable adhesive, perfect for those times you need a “temporary” tag - whether it’s for rental cars, rental equipment or controlling guest vehicle access to corporate facilities, gated communities or downtown parking lots. For those temporary tags, we offer an affordable, onsite printable windshield tag. The interior mount feature adds a layer of security to ensure the tag is not removed. Frankly, the glass options are endless! 

Metalcraft's Destructible RFID Windshield Tags destruct upon removal from a windshield. Using strategically placed slits to aid in destruction these tags are virtually impossible to remove in one piece.

The Rearview Mirror Tag is an optimal choice for access control in parking lots, gated communities and anywhere vehicles come and go. The logo and bar codes are subsurface printed on thick polyester for durability and rigidity.

The Metalcraft RFID Windshield Tag utilizes passive RFID UHF technology offering a more economical option to active windshield tags available. Encased between thin layers of polyester, the specialized inlay doesn’t require a standoff to read either through or on a glass windshield.

Metalcraft's Onsite Printable RFID Windshield Tag offers an affordable option when you require a temporary tag that needs to be printed on-demand.

DuraDestruct Security RFID Tag's specialized construction for glass surfaces eliminates the transferability of the RFID tag and incorporates two levels of destructibility.
